I made a reservation for a single after reading the comments here on Trip Advisor and I wasn't disappointed. Pros: Super clean rooms with Wifi. Very friendly host. 2 mins walk to the Bangsar LRT. Lounge to meet other travelers. They've also got PCs that you can use and plenty of books to read. Cons: None!

The hostel is near a metro station, but the area is really dirty and crappy looking. The hostel is not easy to find because the sign is really small and it is above an auto mechanic garage. I got a single room that did not even have a real bed, just a mattress on the floor with no blanket or... More

Just as a note, the beds are matresses on the floor, (not in all rooms though) this did not affect our comfort. Good: Super helpful owner who is very keen to give advice on your trip in Malaysia, Very clean facilities, Excellent WiFi, Access to kitchen facilities including free tea and water, Close to bangsar LRT station, Plethora of local...

Last year, my partner and I went to visit Malaysia and decided to stay in KL for few nights which turned into longer. We stayed at the Bodhi lodge. We had discovered this little gem of a place, when randomly checking for affordable accommodation. The rooms are all furnished with basic furniture and air conditioning, which you adjust to your...

We booked for 2 nights as a late back up for some other accommodation that fell through. We booked through agoda and the pictures for the private double showed a nice double bed in a clean room. When we arrived our 'double' bed was in fact two single mattresses on the floor. The mattresses were about 5cm thick. The window... More

Bodhi lodge is a nice budget place in KL. Friendly, nice atmosphere, clean rooms and comfortable stay. The only negative is the location, as you always have to walk to the lightrail and take it if you want to go sightseeing, shopping or anything. However, still definitely a value for money, nice stay. Some cafes and restaurants etc are also... More

Stayed at this hotel due to a recommendation from a fellow traveller. Loved it here. Stayed for 3 nights and would've stayed longer if not for our schedule. Great atmosphere, very close to the subway and city center. Quiet neighbourhood. Above a mechanic shop but the noise does not disturb you. Stayed in a 4 bed dorm and the rooms... More

Stayed here for a night before catching a flight the next day. The lodge is located at a really convenient spot. Just 5 mins walk from bangsar lrt station and a 15 mins walking distant to a nearby mall (bangsar village). There are mamak stalls (local food stalls) just beside the lodge. Staying here is much more peaceful than staying... More

Reasonable priced rooms on a good location close by the subway. The owner is very friendly and helped us with our journey to the next place. The thing we liked the most was her aunt (Auntie) who helped out with cleaning. We loved watching her being very cranky and doing her thing. Very clean, soft beds and a good shower!

The bodhi lodge is definitely a yes for budget traveller, I stayed in a mixed dorm for just one night. However, I am impressed by the cleanliness of the lodge and the friendly owner, GG. It is a home away from home. Everything is just very nice. Besides, the location is very strategic, less than 5 minutes to Bangsar LRT... More
